Member of the Premier League Board,Albert Commey, has described Sports Minister Nii Lantey Vanderpuaye’s recent comments about the Ghana Premier league as unfortunate.
Nii Lantey in a recent interview with Asempa FM noted that the Ghana top-flight is unattractive and as result is unable to attract sponsors.The PLB which is made up of the 16 premier league clubs hit back at the Sports Minister claiming they are disappointed with his comments in a statement.
Albert Commey who doubles as the CEO of Aduana Stars says criticism from father figures like the Minister must be private and not public.
“With all the greatest respect i will advise him to act as a father, he should make sure we get lots of sponsorship for the local league and that will help Ghana football,” he told Joy Sports
“Whatever that happens negative to football it affects the Ministry directly and not indirectly so i will plead with him to watch his statement.
“If he has any advice we will plead with him to call us because people are investing a lot.”
